I am getting back in the zone. November is almost here, and all I can think about is my book. I was doing research all weekend (by research, I mean searching YouTube and Netflix on the Wii after the kids went to bed for clips from old TV shows and movies that reminded me of my characters) and I stumbled upon an acoustic version of the 30 Seconds to Mars song, The Kill (Bury Me). (I'll post the long, roundabout story of my moments of serendipity associated with this song at the end if you feel like reading that far.) I've played it over and over, instantly knowing that it will become a part of the new soundtrack for my writing.
As I add/subtract songs, I'll keep the playlist window at the bottom updated. I know this version of Between Souls is going to be more complicated than the movie. I think that I need to explore more of the back story for Richard and Bryan - especially Bryan. He is so deeply connected to Lucie, and he doesn't develop much in the screenplay. So there will be a few new songs specifically for him.
Believe it or not, I have a new song that is part of Grammy's soundtrack now (Grammy in the book, not my mother). It's going to seem very strange, but the song is Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine. Her video is odd, as is the older video you can watch on her website, but my favorite version is the performance she gave at the MTV VMAs this year. Very Grammy-in-her-prime, and worth watching.
Now for the serendipity...
